  1. Calling all Exhibitors! It is that time of year again and I would like to formally announce that the applications for OVERLORD D-DAY 75 a.k.a The Overlord Show 2019 are now open! You may be aware that 2019 marks 75 years after D-Day, and it has been decided that we will really push the boat out this year to commemorate this monumental event in history. The team are pleased to announce our most ambitious plans for the main battle, where we hope to simulate the Normandy landings, landing craft and all. While we wish to focus on D-Day this year, we continue to believe that the Overlord Show is dedicated to providing an interesting, exciting, and educational experience of “recent” military history, and is fundamentally multi-era, and we continue to welcome applications from all military vehicles, reenactors or other exhibits regardless of the associated era. As in previous years, the applications for the show will be processed online. Please make an account on our website (If you made an account last year you will NEED to re-register for 2019), and visit the Exhibitors Page. Application forms for each section can be found by clicking the respective buttons on that page! Please visit https://overlordshow.co.uk/exhibitors/ to make an application! Date: 25th -27 May 2019 Location: The Lawns, Denmead https://overlordshow.co.uk/ https://www.facebook.com/omspectacular/ https://www.twitter.com/@OverlordShow https://www.facebook.com/events/180388875930587/
  2. Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself. Yes, there were new standpipes and the entire water pipe has been relaid at the correct depth. I think duckboards around the standpipes for next year. Also, the road plainings helped a lot. Obviously, this will be an ongoing process. After the heavy rain the day after the show, we have identified a number of areas which we will need to do for next show just in case.
  3. Applications are now open! Please visit https://overlordshow.co.uk/exhibitors/ to make an application!

  7. Only 4 days to go until the applications close. If anyone is interested in making applications they should do so, asap.
  8. Thought it might be a good idea to bump this back to the top. We've got a good 20 different re-enactment groups (over 250 re-enactors) who've sent their applications in, over 120 vehicles in. Traders are slowly coming through too. We're about where we should be in terms of applications. But remember we are insisting everyone makes an application rather than to just show up at the show. You can find the application forms on the website under the drops downs Vehicles/Re-enactors/Traders etc. https://overlordshow.co.uk/

  11. I have been given the go ahead to open the Application for Vehicles. (Re-enactors and Traders will open soon). The Online Application form for Vehicles can be accessed from http://overlordshow.co.uk/vehicles/entry-form/ You will receive a confirmation via email if you specify one, or via post if you don't. All exhibitors are required to fill out an application form, there are NO exceptions to this. If you simply turn up, we aren't necessarily going to turn you away. But you are going to be made to fill out an application form. So might as well do it now.

  13. Thanks to everyone for the information. We're going to monitor the situation for the moment considering there we have no space in the garage to do the work on it.
  14. So is this something better monitored and left until an engine overhaul? It looks like quite a lot of hassle. I'm not a motor mechanic and wouldn't really be confident in doing it myself.
  15. Hi, Took the Ford GPW out for a spin today. When we parked up we noticed that there was quite a puddle of oil on the ground near the back of the engine. On inspection there was quite a strong drip coming from the back of the engine where the bell housing joins it (it is a bit mangled back there so there is small gap, but this is the first time it has been leaking so much) Doesn't seem to leak as fast when the engine is running... Is this going to be the Main Rear seal of the engine or something else? Thanks in advance...
  16. Thanks Julian. We will take a look at them when we come around to renewing. It seems that Cherished Vehicles has been taken over by a company called A-Plan. Cherished wouldn't do insure me before. A-Plan might do it. I didn't know that, but like I said before, we wouldn't didn't want to tow it behind the M35. For one, a jeep is considerably smaller width than the M35. That means you wouldn't even be able to see the jeep behind you. Not knowing where the "trailer" as it were is, isn't the greatest idea.
  17. Hi, Sorry to ask a question on a topic which has been covered a number of times here but after searching I've not really been able to find any information which directly answers the question. I'm currently 19, will be 20 around the time the insurance of my dad's Ford GPW insurance needs to be renewed. We actually also have an M35A2 as well and we would like to attend shows with both vehicles (while towing the GPW is an option - it isn't one we would like to explore), hence another driver is needed, myself. Has anyone been able to successfully insure as a secondary driver anyone under the age of 21 on their vehicle? After checking I've not been able to find any insurance companies which will even consider insurance someone about my age. Obviously we would pay for the privilege to do this, but it seems widely that many insurance companies policy is to not insure anyone under 21, even though they wouldn't have any issue insuring me on a newer more expensive modern car. Does anyone know of a company that would do be able to add a 19/20 year old to classic motor insurance as a secondary driver? Or at least the names of insurance companies which might do it... Thanks in advance.
  18. Hi everyone, I had an account here for a while however never got around to making an introduction. My dad bought a Ford Jeep a few years ago and that got me into the hobby. He is also a member of HMVF. We recently bought a Vietnam war M35A2. I'm currently 18, but am yet to start driving. I can't wait to be able to drive the Jeep, at least. Out of my dad and me, He is the driver, and I'm the one who reads the technical manuals and understands how everything is meant to work. I take the time to sit down and have a play, where as my dad doesn't touch anything he doesn't know about. Weirdly, I don't have a particular interest. We recently started attending shows as an exhibitor and will continue to do so if whenever I have time away from university.
